Grandparent Scam

The grandparent scam is a form of telephone fraud. The scammer phones a grandparent and pretends to be a grandchild in distress and asks that funds be wired to a specified location. The “relative” of the grandparent explains she is in trouble and needs funds that will be used for bail money, lawyer’s fees, hospital bills, or another fictitious expense.
